Living Our Code

Our Code of Conduct demonstrates how we achieve our goals and succeed the right way. It defines our principles of business conduct and reflects our shared commitment to integrity. “Doing the right thing and acting with integrity” is one of our core values, so it means more to us than just complying with the law. We live this core value by doing what’s right and conducting ourselves in a way that maintains trust and respect around the globe.

The Code applies to all employees, officers, and directors of Comcast Corporation and all of Comcast Corporation’s subsidiaries and affiliates in which Comcast Corporation directly or indirectly owns more than 50% of the voting control.

In support of the principles described in the Code, our Company maintains policies designed to guide employees across our business units (Comcast Cable, NBCUniversal, Sky, and Comcast Corporate) and geographies. Further, each business unit maintains policies and procedures tailored to those businesses, their job functions, and geographies. In some cases those policies and procedures may go further than this Code. We are all responsible for knowing and complying with the policies and procedures that apply to us.

We conduct business in many geographies, where laws and regulations can vary. We recognize our fundamental obligation to obey the law everywhere we operate. No business opportunity, perceived management pressure, or unwritten understanding ever justifies violating a legal requirement. Because Comcast is incorporated in the United States, our businesses and employees around the world may be subject to U.S. law, in addition to the laws of any other country where we operate. In some instances, multiple laws across jurisdictions may need to be considered.

We provide all employees with this Code and training to help you understand your responsibilities. If you have any questions about our Code or the policies or laws that apply to you, please speak to your manager, a Human Resources representative, or Legal (including Compliance).

Use Good Judgment When Making Decisions

Our Company defines principles of business conduct in this Code and maintains policies and procedures to help you comply with the law. However, in today’s rapidly changing workplace, situations may arise where the right path to take may not be clear. If you are facing a difficult decision or situation, ask yourself these questions before proceeding:

  • Is it allowed under the Code of Conduct and other Company policies?
  • Does it feel right?
  • Does it protect our Company’s reputation?
  • Would I feel comfortable reading about it in the news or explaining it to my family?

If you answer “No” or “I’m not sure” to any of these questions, take a different course of action or pause to ask for help. We have resources and contacts that are available to you so you do not have to face a difficult decision or situation alone.

Waivers

In rare circumstances, an employee, officer, or director may need to seek a waiver of a provision of the Code of Conduct. An employee should consult with their manager or a Company lawyer if they believe a waiver is needed. Employee requests for a waiver may only be granted by the Comcast Corporation General Counsel or by the General Counsel of the employee’s business unit. A waiver for any Comcast Corporation executive officer or director may only be granted by the Comcast Corporation Board of Directors and will be disclosed to the public as required by law.
